Stack of Strawberry Books

Besides being delicious, strawberries are also very interesting! If you like strawberries and reading... or if you just want to take your strawberry love further... then check out these strawberry book reviews!

Only some of the most important texts about strawberries are included in this list. And, as with other things on this site, these books are family friendly.

The first 3 volumes reviewed on this site all contain large sections devoted to the history of the strawberry (especially it's history in the United States). As a result, each successive work references and builds upon the insights given in the books that preceded it. For this reason, it may be somewhat helpful to read the histories in the order in which they were published. Here they are, ordered by their years of publication:

The Strawberry: History, Breeding and Physiology by George M. Darrow (Introduction by Henry A. Wallace) (1966);

A History of the Strawberry from Ancient Gardens to Modern Markets by Stephen Wilhelm and James E. Sagen (1974); and

Quest for the Perfect Strawberry by Herbert E. Baum (2005).

A book review is also given for

Strawberries by Jim F. Hancock (1999).

This book also commits several pages to the history of the strawberry. However, it is perhaps most valuable for it's material on the breeding and raising of strawberry plants, and the harvesting and processing of strawberry fruit.
